Dear Secretary,

Thank you for meeting with me at the Kuranda Regional Cabinet Meeting on 1 December 1997.

You would be aware that this was the first time that Cabinet has met in Kuranda. Regional Cabinet Meetings provide an excellent opportunity for Ministers to meet with people to discuss local issues of concern and I welcome these opportunities.

Regarding your support for free beaches in Queensland, although the Vagrants Act Review Committee has recommended options to the Govemment, Cabinet will still have to decide if there should be any changes to the current laws.

If the submission is approved by Cabinet, the amendments required are of a minor nature and could be introduced to Parliament with a number of other minor amendments that are currently under consideration.

The extremely heavy legislative burden during 1997 prevented these miscellaneous amendments from being considered this year. However, it is my intention to take a submission to Cabinet in 1998.

I trust this advice is of assistance to you and your organisation.

Yours sincerely

Minister for Police and Corrective Services and Minister for Racing
